Regional Meeting on Education and Child Protection in Contexts of Migration, Displacement and Humanitarian Emergencies

20 February 2019 Paris, France

The International Education Funders Group and ECFG are organising a regional meeting in Paris, generously hosted as a side-event of the WISE@Paris conference. The theme of this meeting is Education and Child Protection in Contexts of Migration, Displacement and Humanitarian Emergencies. This follows a previous meeting on this topic held in Nairobi in October 2018, and will provide an opportunity to further explore action items and future directions for donors to support integrated programming on education and child protection in emergencies.

The meeting will begin with a short talk by Manos Antoninis of UNESCO's Global Education Monitoring Report, who will discuss some key findings from the 2019 GEMR on Migration, displacement and education, particularly related to international cooperation. This will be followed by Tasha Gill from UNICEF, who will discuss key issues in child protection in contexts of migration and displacement, and the opportunities for collaboration between the education and child protection sectors.

This meeting is for invited ECFG and IEFG members and invited funders only.
